INTENSE LOVE. IS IT A MENACE? [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
INTENSE LOVE. IS IT A MENACE? Unless things change, and very radi cally, the old heartrending cry, 'Ob, save us from our friends!' will have to be amended so as to read, 'Ob, save us from those who love us!' At first blush this may seem like nonsense, but Just think Almost every morning we read of some young man killing- some young woman because he loves her so. It has got to the point In some parts of the country where the fathers of marriageable young women wHi not permit the young .men who love them to enter the house until they are searched for concealed wea pons. However, there has always been more or less of this, so that It will not be worth while to worry over It this beau tiful August morning. But we should take some cognisance of the fact that tho trouble Is not confined altogether to young lovers, nor does it always result in shooting', but sometimes manifests it self in ways which are equally disagree able and more humiliating. Take, .for Instance, the man who was so fon...
THE BEEKEEPER THE SWARMING SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
pie|iaiia»ai THE SWARMING SEASON. - To those who make the production of comb honey their principal object, there Is one serious disadvantage. There have been many suggestions and experiments (writes an English bee-keeper) with re gard to the disposition of bees to swarm, amongst which may be mentioned the American method ot caging the queen for a Ehort period about a week prior to the main honey flow, thus liberating space in the brood nest by hatching bees. This has the disadvantage of eventually weakening the colony nume ! rieally. t With no swarming to be dreaded the bee-keeper would produce enough honey to bring him a good Income. There Is, ot course, less swarming probable when workng for extracted honey, but every body does not use It, many desiring honey In the section. There Is certainly an appetising appearance which Is at tractive to the eye about comb honey. If the apiarist, instead ol -spending so much time and labor in hiving swarms, ana preventing them by appliances, w...

THE LABOR OF BEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
THE XABOK OF BEES. It is not every apiarist -whose locality supplies his colonies with the early spring fruit blossom and Its attendant benefits. Indeed In eome districts tt Is almost an unknown quantity. There are, however, many to whom the goose berries and other fruits yield, if not a very saleable commodity, at least a use ful honey, which can be utilised by the bees for feedlne their young. This early supply of food acts as a natural BtlmuluB to the bees, urging them to pro duce brood which when hatched will be worth twice as much as In the sumnvr. The early bees are those which help to make the early ewarm.

DETERIORATION OF THE AYRSHIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 December 1907
DETERIORATION OF THE AYR SHIRE. An American visitor to this year's show of the Highland. Agricultural So ciety, Scotland, Writes the 'Scottish Farmer,' raised a complaint against the present standard of Ayrshire breed of cattle. The character of the Ayrshire has, be says, vastly changed since the middle of the last century. The pre sent day Ayrshire eho'we more quality and refinement, but that there Is any In crease in the milk yield is doubtful, and the shape of the udder, has been culti vated, at the expense of the teats, which, from' being of «ufflclent size to enable the milking to be done comfortably, have now become absolutely tiny. Surely it Ib wit wise to continue producing udders upon such lines.
